, he did not get a bill through congress. instead, last june, he issued an executive order to delays el deportation for those who qualify for up to two year 24-year-old ana araica isye applying for that deferment right now. she came to this country from nicaragua nine years ago and has three young children. >> i want to become legal for my kids. because i want to be able to provide for them. i want to work. >> reporter: araica is getting help with her application from sara sanchez with the iowach american friends service network. sanchez says programs that encourage young immigrants to become legal citizens should be welcomed by iowans. >> we are a >>ate that is aging, and that is aging very rapidly. our baby boomers are retiring. and weate not having youngd people stay here, other than immigrants. we need to understand that immigration in iowa is actually an asset. and we could tap into that asset and manage it in such a way that we can grow. >> reporter: with polls in iowa showing president obama with a thin but steady lead, it's likely that both candidates will try to tap into the gr
. that's dead even. independents are dead even. it is one of these whose mott el is right. more seniors vote than young people the romney team wins. the romney message is up beat. the obama message is kind of negative. don't let these bad guys come in office again. >>> with regard to these polls they weren't all in lock step rather in 2008. in an election like this even if it is this tight, ed, you are doing polling out there say you are off by one or two points. as a pollster you might say hey we came close to nailing it. but not this time. if the polls are off by a point or two it could be, i don't want to use the word land slide but it could be a dominating victory for one side or the other. >> this whole election is decided by less than a million votes. obviously in these 6 or 7 states none of them are for sure. they could tip either way which could make one side or the other winning a land slide or a big margin at this point in time. the president could not do as well as he did four years ago. smiens is when united half of them saying they don't want you any more you are in trouble
they had locked down long ago. we're very confident that it can actually be a part of our ele electoral coalition. >> if pennsylvania was so important, why not make it a state that he made a play for throughout the campaign? >> you have to go when it matters. i think in the last few weeks, we've seen pennsylvania -- the polls there tighten. and it became a tremendous opportunity. i think it's going to be part of 270 and beyond if we continue to do what we've been doing this last few weeks, which is getting out the message that the governor has a better course for america when it comes to fixing the kpi and putting the country back on track and i think that it's going to be really important part of our efforts to turn out many swing voters in those key areas around that state so that we can win it tonight. >> and republicans, no doubt, are energized this electorate. if you look at the battleground states in the early vote, the democrats are ahead in terms of the early vote, except in the state of colorado, where the republicans appear to be ahead there. is that a problem for governor rom
, lady lynn is chief executive of the holding company, el rothschild, a democratic strategist and douglas is president of the american action forum and former director of the congressional budget office. i guess that means you know how to crunch numbers. lot of number crunching going on last night. but in the end, maybe you didn't really need to crunch them so much, douglas, because obama won pretty easily. >> it is one of the remarkable things that the end, the race looked like it looked a year ago, despite all the campaigning and money spent, that the polls going in were reflective of what came out. the only thing that happened was that for a month in between, there were hopes raised on the republican side because the momentum that appeared to gather hyped mitt romney. in the end, i think the president gets credit for a tremendous tactical victory. this was really a ground game in turning his voters out to the polls. it doesn't look like an whoever whelming governing mandate. >> gretchen: how does a republican, many people are going to ask -- lose against a man who has high gas prices,
that really moved the needle here? >>l, el w i'del llbeea ry coterested tolookeahe at t swing .s more than 30 counties onthat gade gor bush in 2004, and then turned around and went for obama in 2008. but then were strongp suporters of walker, both in h is if--n i his gubernatorial election n 2010 and in his recall. i could be curious to see the numbers. it looks like tnoutas henbeen very high, higher than it was orforlka wer.a ethe may have me difference. >> sreenivasan: i pulled u ap map ofthe re call results. yn eoou lok when you look te08wh rtsesul and thees walker results, there was that tidal shift. a at aathere the possible reasons t re cthatheyame back around? >> well, it was interest, that even during the recall, there were people who voted against the recall for governor walker. there was still strong support for obama, about 9%, 10% still approved of him. so i don't think for many people it was such a partisan issue. i think a lot of people just didn't see the recall as fair play or the appropriate way to remove a politician from office who hadn't done something illegal, say. so i
in both directions. what happened in the state legislatures? you can see some big wave ele ctions like in 2010. the early members saw a move in the democratic direction -- numbers saw a move in the democratic direction. if you look at the blue states, there was some movement in the but thereirection was also some moves in the republican direction. republicans picked up legislature in arkansas, west virginia, alaska. both parts of the country pushing in different directions. i think the election is also something of a deepening of polarization. 1993 or 1992, there were 19 democrats who helped republican seats. that number has been declining and declining. there were also some republicans who used to hold seats for democrats for president. before this election, we were down to nine democrats and two republicans who met that definition them tha. in a way, the realignment continues. republicans are sitting in republican seats even though the numbers did not change dramatically in the house. there is a lot of talk about demographics and i am sure we are going to hear that on the panel. i th
